COACHES: Randy Bryant (11-17 in 3rd season at Zion Chapel);; Zack Holmes (3-5 in 1st season at New Brockton, 9-14 in 3rd season overall)
NOTEWORTHY: It has been a lopsided series between these two Coffee County foes, with New Brockton winning the last 6 meetings. Zion Chapel actually held a 3-1 advantage at one point. The game could go a long way in deciding the fourth seed from Class 2A, Region 3, this making the state playoffs.
